Acollectedgentlleman, are you excited for the spring season? What can we expect?

I’m super excited for this spring season, especially after the winter we had. You guys can expect my style posts to transition into spring looks. I’m working on some new style features and interviews from some big names in the game. I’m working with some brands and bringing new giveaways to you all.  Also I mentioned a while back that I want to do video posts , so that’s on the way :). So the spring is shaping up to be great and I’m excited for it. I’m inspired by you all, it’s amazing to have a following as great as you guys 

A Collected Review:
Rebel Wallet by Buffalo Jackson Trading Co.




Comfort - The Rebel Wallet feels good in your front or back pocket, you will barely even notice it’s in there. Also it’s perfect for the guys who wear fitted pants or jeans, it doesn’t leave a bugle like bigger wallets would. It’s the perfect slim wallet for those who want to carry less. 
Durability - The wallet is made of 100% leather and constructed in thick nylon stitching. It can carry under 4 cards at first, but stretches overtime to hold more. It’s made from real leather, so expect it to last you a lifetime and age well.
Style -  The wallet available in whiskey or walnut. It has three card slots in the back and in the front a slot for your ID. It has two slots on top, one for your money and one for your extra cards.   
Final Words-  If you’re always on the go and only  carry under 4 cards,  I recommend you get this wallet. It does enough to get the job done. The perfect wallet for those who like to keep it simple.

Spring Cap

I collaborated with Johnston&Murphy by styling a pair of shoes from their S/S14 Collection. I picked the Ellington Cap Toe Saddle because it’s truly a beautiful looking shoe.This shoe is prefect for spring with its neutral colors and lightweight feel.  So instead of just doing one look around the shoe, I thought it would be cool and challenging to do two. With the first look I was going for a date night/dressed up look, and the second is more of a causal/laid back look. But both can be switched up and worn for almost any occasion.  I also incorporated my favorite spring trends including chinos,prints and lightweight fabrics. Let me know what you think of today’s style post.

The Brady Chukka by Trask

Comfort - They fit true to size and they also super comfortable. By the end of the day of breaking them in , I almost forgot I had them on, that’s how great they felt on my feet. Plus they’re super lightweight, not heavy on you.

Durability - The suede is water-resistant , so you’re covered during the spring showers. It has a skeletal leather lining and leather sock lining. EVA cushioned insole and cushioned latex outsole sourced from sustainably   harvested trees. So this boot is built to last. 

Style - I really love the look of chukka boot. I would pair these chukkas with just about anything. Whether you’re going for a causal or business look, these will definitely compliment your attire and turn heads. The Brady Chukka also comes in a beautiful camel color. 

Final Words- Investing in a great pair of boots goes along way. Quality and craftsmanship is key when it comes to building something that not only last long, but also makes you look and feel great. Trask did on great job on these chukkas and if you can get you hands on a pair, get them.

Talking about investment pieces. Leather products can be expensive—but if it’s made from good leather, it can look polished for a lifetime, and age gracefully as you do.

So all of their products are made to look as masculine as possible, reflecting American toughness. Their wallets are made from the kind of leather that lasts (100% real cow leather).
I’m partnering with Buffalo Jackson this week to give away their Rebel wallet. It comes in two colors, whiskey or walnut. If you win, you pick the color.

Note To Self

Step Back. Refocus . Strategize . Engage.  Listen to Your Heart . Feed Off Negativity & Doubt.  Go Out and Make It Happen

I was emailed a week ago by Dove Men+Care saying they were big fans of my blog and that they wanted to invite me to attend the second/third round games of the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament. I honestly thought it was fake at first. I’m a huge supporter of their products . I use everything they make from the soap to the deodorant. Attending the games was an Easy Decision  to me because it was something I’ve never experienced before. I want my readers to know that you should keep pursuing your dreams and enjoy the journey , because you never know who’s watching and inspired by it . 
NEW Dove® Men+Care® NCAA® Campaign Makes One Decision Easy For Sports Fans Amidst A Tournament Filled With Tough Choices
 Men’s lives are full of tough decisions.  During March Madness® sports fans are faced with a myriad of choices, from eagerly awaiting Selection Sunday decisions, to picking which teams will go all the way in bracket selections. This March, Dove® Men+Care® is making one decision easy for men, off the court.  Throughout the 2014 NCAA® Men’s Division I Basketball Championship, a new campaign from the brand will shine a spotlight on basketball’s top decision makers to show sports fans that Dove® Men+Care® is an easy decision for men’s grooming routines (during game day and beyond).
The new ‘Easy Decision’ campaign includes a video series featuring seasoned basketball decision makers and coaches Frank Vogel and Jay Wright. As top professional and NCAA® head coaches Vogel and Wright decide team line-ups and high-pressure plays almost daily, however there is one easy decision on which both men agree – Dove® Men+Care®. The ‘Easy Decision’ campaign will highlight how Dove® Men+Care® body wash and bar offer more care for men’s skin1. The videos will air throughout March Madness® programming as part of Unilever’s multi-year NCAA® Corporate Partnership with CBS Sports and Turner Sports, and on www.youtube.com/dovemencareus.

Weather So Soft

Spring officially starts in six days and I couldn’t be more excited. The best thing about spring is the weather is balanced. It’s not too hot or too cold , meaning you can still layer like its winter and wear less like it’s summer. I was able to work with Giorgio Brutini and style a pair of their shoes for the spring. I picked this particular shoe because of the look and color. It’s a shoe that could be dressed up or down and at the same time go with anything.  Be sure to visit Giorgio Brutini and check out their amazing collection of shoes
